For a future research project I need to grasp as all of the information I can and concepts over condensed matter physics (with my current background I am fairly familiar with the mathematics and theoretical tools used in this domain), and I already figured out the elements I'll be learning from: two textbooks covering most of the domain (2 * 700 pages approx. if it's relevant) and a series of lectures (14 * 85min) but I'd enjoy having a methodological advice on the method. Should I start with books and then watch the video lectures? the inverse? or both at the same time?
I kinda feel that there are no general answer to that, but if someone here had to pass through a self-learning experience like that and want to share his experiences and some
ps: I hope achieving this in 2 months, spending 8-9 hours/day on it
